Red Carpet treatment at the Classy Awards!

One of my favorite days of the year are the Classy Awards....Classy's for short. :)  
We get the red carpet treatment including the paparazzi.  

Once we enter the Classy's presentation begins.  

After the award ceremony, we get to watch the world premier of the Wonderful Whales end of the year DVD. 

Enjoy your summer my Wonderful Whales!  I love you all.

I am glad I was your teacher
I've come to love you so. 
I can't believe the end is here
I hate to see you go! 
Remember all the fun we had, 
the things we learned and did!
But, most of all remember you're a very special kid!

Felize Cinco de Mayo

We started our fiesta with a sampling of Mexican foods!  Yummy!

No fiesta would be complete without a pinata!

Story Camp Out: Authors Welcome

Story Camp Out
We have been working long and hard on publishing our books. To celebrate this accomplishment, we went camping today!

Students came to school to find that our classroom had been transformed into a campsite.  

We all piled into the tent to listen to each others stories! Each author got to share their book with the class. There was such a great variety of stories!

After, we had fun rotating around to different literacy stations.   We partner read by the campfire, made words by the picnic table, used the iPads and wrote stories in the tent.  

Of course no camp out is complete without delicious s'mores!

Be on the lookout this week for your child's published book!
